From 1901 Skoczylas studied sculpture at the School of Applied Arts in Wien (Vienna), then sculpture and painting at the Krakow-Union Academy of Fine Arts, and he finally studied sculpture in Paris and graphics in Leipzig. For several years, he lived in Zakopane, where he taught drawing at the School for Forest Industry. Beginning in 1918 he settled in Warszawa, where he studied at the Faculty of Architecture of the Technical University, and with the leading engraving faculty at the School of Art and later the Academy of Fine Arts.
